Dallas Cowboys linebacker Jaylon Smith had surgery on his left wrist Thursday, the team announced.

Smith, 25, played all 16 games for the fourth straight season and led the team with a career-high 152 tackles.

He was listed on the injury report in Week 16 with a wrist problem but wound up with 11 tackles in a win against the Philadelphia Eagles.

A 2016 second-round pick and 2019 Pro Bowl selection, Smith added 1.5 sacks, one interception, two fumble recoveries, five passes defensed and five tackles for loss in 2020.

He is the second prominent Cowboys player to undergo offseason surgery. Wide receiver Amari Cooper had a minor procedure on his right ankle last week.
